Today we’re getting serious, folks. The #MeToo campaign is still in full swing, now joined by the TIMESUP campaign started by women in Hollywood. A lot has been written on the topic and I hope this is a subject that will continue to generate enlightening discussions. Today, I wanted to add my two cents as well.
Yeah, you heard it right. Amazon has announced an interest in developing a Lord of the Rings tv-show. Practical issues aside (I thought the filming rights were securely locked away, but apparently you can now have them for a very high price) I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in asking: WHY?
I don’t want this to become one of those blogs that contain more excuses for absence than actual posts, but I do feel like I need to give a small recap of the last 2 months before randomly launching an article online.
…Which I hope means I can pull myself together to write something more often. I already have a few articles planned that I’d love to publish, but I also need to get a bit sharper in spotting interesting conversation pieces to write about. In the meantime, I hope you’re all having a great summer! I definitely am and wanted to let you guys know that I’m still around, lol. Expect a new post up soon!
I’m a sucker for period dramas. But as much as I love Tudors, Bourbons, Caesars and Victorians, why don’t we shake the genre up a bit with some new approaches? Here’s five ideas I’d love to see on the big screen, in no particular order.
It’s finally here, the first full trailer for The Defenders! I’m incredibly exited to see the whole gang team up and kick ass. This trailer already starts out awesome; we finally get to see Matt Murdock be another hero’s lawyer! And it keeps rolling from there. My personal highlights were the Matt/Jessica interactions, Claire the team coach and wondering what the hell is gonna happen to Elektra. It’s cool to see her finally wear bright red, but for whatever reason she’s still really into the cold shoulder look. I guess being a living weapon makes that a bit less important, though. For the rest I’m not quite sure how to feel about the Hand storyline (mainly because an ancient destructive power seems like a lot to handle for these people), but having two cool female villains is definitely nice and it’s just going to be awesome to see everyone together. Bring on August!
Are we still calling this a teaser? Really? It gives away like half the story! Anyway, reaction time.
Last year, I started watching a pirate show called Black Sails. It quickly became one of my favorite series, and this sunday it aired its final episode. Today I´d like to talk about the show in general and give my thoughts on the finale, as this is definitely a show worth checking out.
I’m on twitter now, find me @rbgblog! I’ll be posting my articles (obvs) but I’ll also be retweeting a lot of other interesting stuff and giving more bite-sized opinions on things 🙂
It seems like she’s always been there, like there is no more natural symbol of female empowerment. But where did she even come from and how did she end up here?
